Black holes are awesome, we all know what they’re capable of, but how do black holes even impact us human beings on earth from deep space? Well for one, it could lead to the destruction of earth. If there were ever the chance of a physicist creating a tiny black hole in a lab, and lose control of it, it would essentially spaghettify everything and anything in its path and ultimately wipe out the entire human race and our planet.

Quantum mechanics can be a quite entangling subject. Such is the topic of quantum entanglement. As I was reading Brian Greene’s “The Fabric of the Cosmos” and encountered the idea of locality and nonlocality, I became quite intrigued but yet confused. Continue reading “Nonlocality – When Particles Can Affect One Another From Large Distances”
Although there are various problems in today’s society, a problem that itches the back of my and physicists’ minds continues to exist. The struggle to unify the theories of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity is ever-growing. Continue reading “Unifying Quantum Mechanics and the Theory of Relativity”
Scientists have created a wormhole in a lab! Sadly, for us sci-fi geeks and nerds, it’s a magnetic wormhole, not a gravitational one. Quite fortunately it still has the same fundamentals of a wormhole and is awesome in its own way!
Happy Thanksgiving! In the United States, family gathers together to share what it is they are thankful for, and to spend time with one another. However, in space, astronauts don’t have the opportunity to meet and gather with their families – they are still required to work. Continue reading “Thanksgiving in Space”
Ever wondered if there may be another fundamental force of nature adding to the four already-known forces: gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak nuclear forces? Luckily for you, physicists may have detected a boson that may lead to a fifth fundamental force of nature. Continue reading “What Exactly IS this Fifth Force?”
A fifth fundamental force of nature could soon be added to the four known forces of the universe: gravity, electromagnetism, strong, and weak nuclear forces. Continue reading “A Fifth Force – How Could it Affect Society and Science?”
Due to climate change, a temperature rise of 1.8-2 degrees Celsius would threaten the existence of more than a million different species with extinction. This includes the polar bears! Climate change is slowly, but surely, decimating various habitats throughout the earth. Continue reading “Changes in Climate Kills”
The explosion of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket on Thursday, September 1st, 2016, was caught on camera. The explosion itself was TREMENDOUS and awesome to watch, but in the scheme of things, its explosion was a major setback for SpaceX.
